Bengaluru, Dec 2: Government Chief Whip and legislator V Sunil Kumar on Wednesday asked BJP State President Nalin Kumar Kateel to immediately convene a meeting of MLAs to put an end to leaders making statements to each other in public.
In a letter to Kateel, Kumar has expressed concern over Ministers, legislators and party leaders making public statements over the delayed Cabinet expansion and nominations to various state-run Boards and Corporations.
Kumar urged Kateel to convene a meeting of MLAs so that they can express their views on a party forum. "These public remarks (by ministers and MLAs) have hurt thousands of party workers and well-wishers, who are working under a common ideology,” Kumar, who represents Karkala and is said to be a ministerial aspirant.
Without discriminating between natives and migrants, they must be made to remember the disciplinary framework of the party. I am confident that you will do that immediately," Kumar wrote to Kateel.
The Karkala MLA said that legislators like himself had to express their views on these developments within the party forum. "We would like to share our views regarding developments under the current BJP government, its decisions and activities within the party. The suggestions we offer will help in further strengthening the party and ensuring more efficient administration by the state government," he added.
